A nonsurgical injectable technique called Kybella targets fat beneath the chin. This area is targeted with a series of injections of deoxycholic acid. The procedure does not require incisions, and most clients have minimal downtime.
Adults 18 years or older with moderate to severe fat beneath the chin are the best candidates. If you have had or are planning facial surgery, have trouble swallowing, are pregnant or nursing, or have an infection or medical condition near the planned injection site, you might not be a good candidate.
Bile acids, such as deoxycholic acid, are naturally produced by the body to aid in fat absorption. A synthetic form of this is used as an injection in Kybella injections. Acid is injected under the chin area to destroy fat cells so they cannot store fat. Kybella injections should be administered by a healthcare professional since deoxycholic acid can kill other cells as well.
To ease pain and discomfort, your healthcare provider may apply a topical numbing agent or ice pack to the injection sites before the procedure. Under the chin, 20 to 30 injections are usually given, but up to 50 can be injected. Over the next few weeks, the body metabolizes the acid to kill fat cells.
Each person requires a different number of treatment sessions. In order to achieve optimal results, multiple treatments may be necessary. The maximum number of Kybella treatments you can receive is six, with at least one month between each treatment.
Your ideal results should be visible within one to seven months. Your initial consultation will consist of discussing your cosmetic goals, evaluating your current aesthetic, and advising you on how many treatment sessions you will require to achieve your goals. If your submental fullness is caused by poor posture or sagging skin, you can expect to need around one or two treatment sessions.
If your submental fullness is caused by a mild or moderate amount of excess fat, you may need three or four treatment sessions. You should expect to need five to six sessions if you have severe submental fullness caused by excess fat.
A major advantage of Kybella injections is that the fat removal results will last a lifetime. Although everyone’s physiology is different, most adults stop being able to grow new fat cells when they reach the age of 25. Formulated with deoxycholic acid, the formulation destroys a significant proportion of fat cells. Dead fat cells are flushed out of your body by your lymphatic system over time.
A treatment plan should be tailored to your specific needs by your healthcare provider. In order to achieve desired aesthetic goals with Kybella, most people will need more than one treatment. Two to four Kybella treatments produced visible results for most people in clinical studies. Some cases required six treatments.
Deoxycholic acid destroys fat cells in the submental area, resulting in lasting results that will not require further treatment. You can contact our med spa for further information.
While Kybella is not surgical, it can cause pain, swelling, bruising, redness, and numbness. In most cases, Kybella’s recovery process is minimal, and downtime varies from person to person. It usually takes one to two weeks for minor side effects to subside. Kybella specialists are available at Luminous MediSpa in Katy, TX.
